Experience a space time travel through past, present and future through the eyes of Guatemalan timekeeper Branly Gio Lopez, along rituals for the Planets of our Solar System still alive in the Dravidian Temples in the Vedic South of India. Ever since the ‘End of the Mayan calendar’ Branly has researched techniques and the meaning of Mayan Cosmology, trying to recover ancient rituals and knowledge painfully devastated by 500 years of colonization. During his vision quest he slowly recognizes deep roots in the echos of an old civilisation. Meanwhile the volcano erupts, the temple elephant dies and the turtle breathes home.
